Joint Pain Q & A

Why do I have joint pain?

You can have joint pain anywhere in your body, although it’s most common for men and women to experience knee, hip, and shoulder pain. The cause of joint pain — whether it’s isolated to one area, or widespread throughout many joints — can stem from:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures


What should I expect during my first appointment?

You’ll need a thorough diagnosis during your first appointment. Dr. Helvig meets with you and reviews your entire medical history, including information about an injury (if that applies to you). Bring in any imaging (like MRIs or x-rays) for him to look over. He’ll probably take new x-rays during your appointment, just to get a current view of your joints. You also can start treatment the very same day after he puts together a customized treatment plan for you.


How can a chiropractor help me with joint pain?

As a wellness practitioner, Dr. Helvig works with you to help your body to heal itself. During your chiropractic session, he may use ultrasound, electrical nerve stimulation, or cold laser therapy. These gentle treatments help heal soft tissues in and around your joints, which may be damaged.

Dr. Helvig is also an expert in teaching lifestyle techniques that help reduce your joint pain. For instance, if you’re overweight, his team can work with you on diet and exercise regimens. Exercising is important, even if you have joint pain, because it helps maintain your weight and can help prevent stiffening in your joints. But you need to know which types of exercises you can do — and how to properly do them — so you don’t worsen your joint condition.


Will I need chiropractic adjustments?

Possibly, depending on the cause of your joint pain. If you have alignment issues in your body that cause your joint pain, chiropractic adjustments can help. You won’t necessarily have to go through the traditional manipulation techniques. For men and women with joint pain, trigger-point therapy can be beneficial for realignment. With this treatment, Dr. Helvig uses a specialized chiropractic tool to apply gentle pressure to the affected area. This carefully puts your skeleton back into alignment, taking pressure off joints that are misaligned.
